Description (Brief)
The signed watercolor is one of three in the Ferris Collection in which Stephen Ferris depicted the brewery on Girard Avenue in Philadelphia. The similarity of the building to Moorish architecture probably appealed to the artist, who was very interested in that subject. However buildings in the pencil sketch at upper right look more like Philadelphia. See also GA*14540 and GA*14547.
